What would you do with cards that only have the grid of the respondent?
Living in South Dakota I get lots of QSLs, and my grid is well displayed on
the card, but I have never bothered to look the other guy's grid up and put
it on the card.
I figured he put his grid on his card and I put my grid on my card.....

For VUCC satellite credit I want to see on the QSL card:
1. the word "sat", or "satellite", or the actual satellite like AO-40
2. The 4 digit grid of each of the QSO partners. 6 digit grid squares
are OK too
3. Uplink and downlink frequencies or bands, eg 2M up, 70 cm down, U/S,
4. the normal QSL info like call signs, date, time in UTC,
5. signal report: RST for CW (eg.599), RS for SSB/FM (eg.59)
EME recognized signal reports would be OK for EME QSLs.
6. Multiple QSO's on a single card or sheet of paper are OK with all
If typed/printed I want to see the senders initials to authenticate
Multiple QSO's on a label, on a QSL card are OK.
